Resources for Biblical Masculinity
Before we get into our biblical manhood resources guide, we want to recommend our 12-day Colossians Bible study: The Preeminence of Christ.
It’s the quickest way to start a daily Bible reading habit and learn how to get more out of God’s Word. Colossians is a short and powerful letter by the Apostle Paul. It’s all about Jesus and his authority over all things. The Preeminence of Christ study will teach you how to read the Bible and apply it more faithfully to your daily life.
The Preeminence of Christ
12-Day Bible Study
This Bible study will help you set a steady pace to study the book of Colossians over 12 days. Each section highlights a particular passage, provides background context and helps the reader examine what God is saying.
Then, it finishes with a few questions to guide your personal application.
Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the exposition of Scripture and personal relationships in order to equip the Church to impact this generation.
Let’s get into the resources guide on biblical manhood…
What Does the Bible Say About Biblical Manhood?
Here at Snowbird, we believe God has clearly designed and laid out a standard for Masculinity in His Word. We believe that God has designed and called men to lead, work, and protect in any and every part of life we find ourselves in: whether as young men, as husbands, as fathers, as pastors, as employees, and as members of the Church. This standard is what we hold to and what we boldly teach.
We have podcasts, audio files, articles, and recommended books that delve into what it means to strive and live out Biblical Masculinity. Some of these resources come from our Be Strong Men’s Conference, our Summer Camp sessions devoted to biblical sexuality and leadership, and from other trusted sources.
Take a look at some of our best resources to learn more about what it means to be a biblical man.
